Reviews

The first five films in the popular horror series. 'Halloween' (1978) stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the bookish babysitter who becomes the focus of the attentions of psychopathic killer Michael Myers (Tony Moran) when he escapes from a mental institution on Halloween. 'Halloween 2' (1981) takes place on the same night in 1978. With Laurie (Curtis) still in hospital recovering from the initial attack, her assailant somehow comes back from the grave and begins stalking her once again. 'Halloween 3 - Season of the Witch' (1983) deviates from the tried-and-tested slasher formula of its predecessors, following the investigations of Dr Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) into strange occurrences in a small Californian town. 'Halloween 4 - The Return of Michael Myers' (1988) sees the psychopathic killer return once again to his home town of Haddonfield. This time he sets his sights on his niece, Jaime (Danielle Harris). Can his old nemesis, psychiatrist Doctor Loomis (Donald Pleasence), stop him in time? 'Halloween 5 - The Revenge of Michael Myers' (1989) sees Myers return to pursue Jaime. Will she be able to survive a second stalking by the remorseless killer?

This is a great little box set if you are new to the Halloween films, or if you need to collect them from scratch again. First of all, let me explain to the uninitiated how the Halloween franchise works, for there are two storylines and one stand-alone film. The stand-alone film, which has nothing to do with the Michael Myers story is Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982). There are then two different storylines:

*Possible Spoilers*

Story One
Halloween (1978), Halloween 2 (1981), Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988), Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989), and Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995). In this run, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has apparently died by Halloween 4, therefore she on features in the first two; Dr Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasance) features in all of these films

Story Two
Halloween (1978), Halloween 2 (1981), Halloween 7: H20 (1998), Halloween 8: Resurrection (2002). This run ignores Halloween 4-6 and Laurie Strode has not died; Dr Loomis is only in the first two (Pleasance passed away the year Halloween 6 was released)

Remake
Rob Zombie re-made Halloween (2007) and Halloween 2 (2009)

That's a very brief explanation of the franchise to date. Now, the box set? This offers you the first story run - although annoyingly, Halloween 6 is left out - and you get the stand-alone Halloween 3, which looks closely a the domestic roots of Halloween, covering sacrifice and witchcraft.

Halloween, Halloween 2, Halloween 4, and Halloween 5 contain the Michael Myers storyline, beginning with the John Carpenter slasher film that is heavily influenced by the Alfred Hitchcock - Robert Bloch film, Psycho (1960).

Essential viewing for any film fan. The halloween films are flawless. Okay so that's a lie. Parts 2 - 5 have flaws. The peerless original may now look dated but it's still supremely watchable and massively enjoyable. Jamie Lee Curtis is superb and so wonderful in her first major film role. All the cast follow her lead. Part 2 whilst lacking the purity of part 1 still has it's moments and entertains hugely. Plus it has a nice explosion. Part 3 is way dodgy but still immensely watchable. An unusual departure away from the plot of the first two. Beware tho the bbfc in their infinite wisdom have brutally, not unlike Michael Myers himself, butchered the neat gore effects. After the disappointment of a Myers less sequel, part 4 brought back the bogeyman and unleashed him on a cast of unknowns. Part 4 has some appeal. Part 5 has unusually muted killings. Beware tho Jamie Lee Curtis does not appear in 4 or 5 except for a photo.

Having never seen any of the Halloween films before the purchase of this set I ordered it feeling rather open towards them, unlike the set which seemed determined to seem closed as a result very tight clasps, making difficult to open with ease and I was slightly worried if I applied to much pressure I’d snap the ruddy thing.
I managed to open it up. It was this point I realised how poorly designed the box was. As well as being difficult to open (which is just a minor problem really) all five discs (not specially printed, the discs are from various separate realises) are layered atop one another on one holster. This is terrible design. To worsen this, the holder for the discs is too tight, meaning every time I remove one I run the risk of cracking the centre of the disc. Not very well designed at all. You’ll probably end up storing the discs in CD-cases just to avoid breaking them, removing the discs takes a stressful amount of concentration.
After a struggle of biblical proportions (I might be exaggerating a bit) I managed to remove the discs without snapping them in to as a result of the holster being too tight, allowing me to watch the films, my thoughts are as follows.

HALLOWEEN
The first and best of the series, in which Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield after killing his sister many years ago to kill again. Interestingly the mask worn by Michael Myers is actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white, had they gone for Mister Spock the film would have been rather unintentionally hilarious. The first Halloween surpassed my expectations, and manages to build suspense particularly well. Shame it has a typical Slasher ending which sort of undermines things.

By Mike Rowland on 6 May 2015
I would of given it five star if it wasn't for part 3 season of the which, I am not saying the season of the which isn't a good film but it should not of been a part of Michael Myers story. Completely different and spoilt the collection. We wouldn't expect to buy Friday the 13th without Jason or nightmare on Elm Street without Freddie. Even so there is two films of Friday the 13th where Jason isn't killing but he is still the main story line, the same as when Halloween is mentioned every one thinks of Michael Myers, I have always seen part 3 as a individual film and not a part of this collection and have always viewed it as a separate film, if I watch the Halloween collection I always miss part 3 Season of the which out and go from 2 to 4 and view part 3 as a separate film, it is a good film is part 3 but it confuses the story of Michael Myers. The Halloween collection without Michael Myers is like Friday the 13th without Jason being a part of it or nightmare on Elm Street without Freddie, I brought the collection separate as individual films as there is eight films in all, when I got season of the which I was looking for another part 3 I couldn't understand why this was a part of the Halloween saga, but other then this they are great films and even season of the which.
